John First, great thread!
How is your tender foot peg setup? (can't find a close-up)
Steps seem to be mounted per drawing. Looking for a good setup.
thanks

Re: allen brake cylinder machining

The quality seals pdf had a very helpful practical example.
My biggest mistake was not the depth but the width (way too narrow).

This feels much better, way less drag but can feel the pressure seal.
Thanks to all! I appreciate the willingness of others to help.

allen brake cylinder machining

I have machined the cylinders and now doing the pistons.
The piston itself is sliding free (approx 0.003"). How deep is the groove for the O-ring?

I am assuming the 0-ring should be proud of the piston but don't know how much!
How stiff should the piston slide?
Thank you
Dave

Re: Form Tool for Wheel Flanges

I have and use one from Rogers-Cooke Locomotive.
I think the owner Bob Holder died last year(?)

I have not seen or heard about others.
